Thursday Quotables: Woundabout


Welcome back to Thursday Quotables! This weekly feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week.  Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written, Thursday Quotables is where my favorite lines of the week will be, and you’re invited to join in!

NEW! Thursday Quotables is now using a Linky tool! Be sure to add your link if you have a Thursday Quotables post to share.


Woundabout by Lev AC Rosen
(published June 23, 2015)

When one of your favorite authors writes a children’s book, you read it! Woundabout is charming and a tad eccentric right from the start:

Many stories have happy beginnings. Cordelia King, age nine, and her brother, Connor King, age eleven, knew this because they had often been read those stories by their parents before bed. Stories where little girls run through fields chasing butterflies and stumble on portals to wondrous places. Stories where boys and their fathers go camping in verdant forests. Stories where everyone is happy except that they haven’t fallen in love yet, which never seemed like much to complain about to Connor and Cordelia.

Sadly, this is not one of those stories.

And just to make a good book even better… there are capybaras! It’s a proven fact that anything is better with capybaras in it.


What lines made you laugh, cry, or gasp this week? Do tell!
